They should have bought minecraft years ago then. Back when the hype was starting and they could have gotten it for a couple million.

Kinda curious as to how they're going to screw it up.
Forced windows 8 integration?
Port the x-box port back to windows and drop the java version?
Mandatory Realms hosting for multiplayer so they can police it and add microtransactions for diamonds? "10 credits = 1 diamond. Or buy a pack and save! Available packs include the 64 diamond Stack Pack, the 574 diamond Block Stack Pack, or the best value the Diamond Block Dick To Pierce The Skies pack!"

Living in the middle of a wyoming town and getting 3Mbps on a good day (advertised as 15meg) I'm in the same situation, though we don't find it to be enough bandwidth. 2 netflix streams is enough to shut everything else down and even with an untouched connection we can't videochat with any good quality.

This should change relatively soon with the unified network rollout getting hundred gig pipes all around the state and more exit points than just I25 south to denver. But I tend to be pessimistic about telecoms actually delivering what they tell politicians and get government cash for.

Like many officers?
Police cruisers already have cameras, and we're already seen cases where the camera is disabled by the officer because they don't think bureaucrats with no experience have the right to judge them. And that's not getting into the officers who disable them or "lose" the footage after the fact to cover up their own crimes.

I'm all for these body cams, but don't expect it to be received with open arms or to change behavior overnight.
I suspect if this passes there is going to be a spike in google searches for "how to secretly disable camera and make it looks like equipment failure".

And until it does reach the public for real, expect a flood of scams citing this as proof their quick test works. Just send a drop of blood and $10,000 and get your cancer test results in a couple days!
The sooner the real thing goes through trials the better. Assuming it does lead to a legitimate test, that is.

I wonder if the homeopaths are going to twist this into a cure? Dilute UV light in water, instant all cancer cure.
At least it would be a step up from the usual bottled water they sell. This stuff would atleast be UV sanitized.
